Alpha Host Wins Award From Hospital


It’s John Riley, co-host of The Morning Drive with John & Nancy on 93.3 The Drive (WPBG), Peoria, and the award is the Bill Houlihan Professional Award from Children’s Hospital of Illinois. Every year Children’s Hospital recognizes advocates throughout Central Illinois who are making a difference in the lives of children. Riley has hosted and coordinated the “Drive for Miracles” radiothon for the past 15 years, raising well over $3 million for the hospital.

Alpha Media SVP/Market Manager, Mike Wild said, “John’s family has experienced the amazing work of Children’s Hospital first hand, making him the perfect advocate. He has a wonderful passion and is dedicated to helping families that are going through difficult times.”

Added Riley, “How we care for our children is one of the most telling aspects of any community, and thanks to Children’s Hospital of Illinois, our children have the best. We are proud of our efforts with the radiothon, and to be in the same company of others who have been nominated or received this award is truly humbling.”
